I’m looking for someone great to join my team at Acumen Fund. I’m looking for a great marketer — a storyteller, a tribe-builder, someone who knows how to connect with people in a real and genuine way and help them to be part of something big…and who at the same time is ready to roll up their sleeves with data and numbers and analytics and web 2.0 tools.
We’re living through an amazing, challenging time. We have a financial meltdown on one hand, and a new U.S. President brought to power on a wave of change from below on the other. This is a tremendous opportunity. The time is ripe to create a step change in terms of awareness, excitement, and membership in Acumen Fund’s community of supporters and advocates – from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands…and someday millions of people who believe that markets and entrepreneurship have a central role to play in the global fight on poverty.
I need someone to help us make this happen. You might be a great blogger or an old-school marketer with lots of new tricks up your sleeves. But either way you bring off-the-charts passion, energy, commitment, and humility to this roll.
You can read the full job description on this Squidoo lens. The boiled-down version is: you’re probably either a super-duper marketer who knows how to use online tools, or you’re world-class with online tools and also have got some great marketing ideas. If you’re neither of these things, this job probably isn’t for you.
Please spread the word to people who might be interested. I’m excited to see who will apply for this role.
